JMI YBB and NYJO: A Youth Big Band Extravaganza

December 19 @ 3:00 pm 5:00 pm

JMI YBB and NYJO: A Youth Big Band Extravaganza

NYJO Academy Big Band x Jewish Music Institute Youth Big Band

Two incendiary young groups combine to pack a powerful punch of Big Band and Jewish music in a dynamic double-header.

The JMI Youth Big Band is Jewish music for the next generation, returning to JW3 for a concert celebrating their fifth year, and their fourth recording We Are Here. Led by Sam Eastmond (Spike Orchestra, John Zorn), composer of the Ivor Novello nominated British suite (commissioned by the PRS Foundation and JW3 in 2019 for the New Music Biennial festival). They come together to learn, play and celebrate the music from key figures in the Jazz genre, such as Ellington, Basie, Maria Schneider, Stan Tracey and many more.
